As promised I got out the big camera.

This is the first of the shots. The whole shebang. (Minus the butterfly!)

So here's the rest of the album.

Hedgee's Heroes unite for a family photo. Sniffy and Cheesy are along for the action as they're a bit of a cross-over.

They also feature in Super-Cat stories along with the Evil Mog.

Then of course we can't forget these guys.

R-mour Dog and his faithful doggie henchmen.

Meanwhile over in Squreville...

Nop and Dop are taking Nober back to jail.

And over in the Monster's castle

The boys are taking on the Monster, his witchy friend and their spooks.

Then the only question that remains is what do a slug a marshmallow and an eraser have in common?

They all spark the creative story writing imagination of a six year old.

I think maybe I'm done here folks. Feeling a bit burned out on this project so I'll maybe take a break for a bit and focus on something new. No doubt I'll be back with the odd new character from these lads but for now it feels like a good time to take a breather.

Thanks for all the comments and encouragement. We've all enjoyed your enthusiasm and support for our funny little world of Hedgee's Heroes. A big thanks from all of us.

No, thank you guys for the fun ideas and great execution! It’s been a fun journey and the gang all look fantastic together. I for one will keep my eyes open for whatever is to come next!

Thanks guys. And thanks for all the sculpting knowledge and pointers along the way. I'll definitely be applying all that I've learned here in future projects hopefully some time soon. I want to get better at this and really make some professional looking products in the future.

I think sometimes my paperclip wire dictates the shapes I end up with at this scale. I need slightly thinner armature wire I think.

The drawing faces video was very interesting. Though at 28mm scale I'd need a magnifying light and much finer tools to really make a serious attempt at it. But hey, maybe I've practiced at this level for long enough and I need to invest in improvement. I do all my hobbying on the fly though, on my lunch breaks in work or squeezed in when I can between wrangling the kids. I haven't had a permanent hobby desk set up for years let alone a lamp to paint by!

Floral wire is a thinner grade that you can get in relatively decent quantity for relatively cheap.

Also, I bought a magnifying light off amazon for what seemed reasonable. My set up in the garage was worth every minute of hauling out and sorting through old boxes, bins, bikes, and other bull- .

Hi everyone. I was drawing some pictures for The Grotlife Sketchbook- see my drawings of happy Orks and Grots when this happened.

Pirate Captain Nedgee

And Mystical Magical Wedgee.

I just thought you might get a kick out of seeing these so I thought I'd post them here as they don't really fit in the Grotlife zone. I haven't any plans to draw more of the Hedgees Heroes but you never know...
